Yankees Catcher Jorge Posada Retires: Caption This Photo

January 24, 2012

It is the end of an era my friends, Yankees catcher Jorge Posada retired today. In honor of his amazing career and because I think he rocks, Jorge is Right Celebrity’s Caption This photo contest for the week.

Jorge Posada

After 17 years of playing the game he loves, Posada is hanging up his pinstripe uniform. More on this not so shocking but yet still kind of sad news in one hot second. I want to take a minute to tell you about our super fun Caption This photo contest. It is so easy, as I am sure so many of you already know. What you do is take a little glimpse at the above picture of Jorge and then caption it by leaving your super funny remarks in the below comments section. Then next Tuesday when a hot new topic and photo is posted check back to see if your remarks are announced as the big winner.

Okay now back to one of my favorite Yankees player saying good-bye to the game. It really isn’t that surprising that Posada decided to retire, there have been rumblings of it since the beginning of the off season. The Yankees didn’t seem all that eager to resign him and he made it clear that he did not want to play the game for any other team. Today during a press conference surrounded by his family and some of his teammates, he shared that he will “forever be a Yankee” and I for one agree with that. He had a great run and will always be an amazing player in my eyes. He made it known at the press conference that he knew it was time to say good-bye to the game, gotta love it when that happens.

I tell you what, sitting at Yankees Stadium watching a game won’t be the same anymore knowing I won’t see Posada out there on the field. Hats off to you Jorge!
